This September, Arta Gallery welcomes the solo-exhibition "HUELLAS" by Lydia Panart.
Path, footprint, trace, vestige, remnant, trail, imprint, sign, deep & lasting impression...
Walking along a reflective path, I found inspiration in those "huellas" that I had once left behind. The way I look at them now is no longer the same. Their significance to me has changed as I see them in a new light, coloured by the passage of time. These paintings are my journey, my 'huellas', my self-discovery.
